Yearly Meeting, the annual gathering of Quakers in Britain, took place on 4–7 May 2018 at Friends House in London.
At the Meeting, the decision was taken to revise Quaker faith & practice, our book of discipline.
Paul Parker, recording clerk for Quakers in Britain said:
Once in a generation, Quakers decide to take a long hard look at our faith, what it means to us, and what we can say about it. Today’s bold decision to revise Quaker faith and practice means it’s time for us to do that again. It’s exciting. We want to hear the insights of younger and more diverse people, and set out how we are a faith fit for the 21st century. I’m looking forward to it.”
